Musings on Ethical AI for Business and resources to help

When I was a kid, one of my favorite movies was Jurassic Park, because well…dinosaurs. I remember the movie being such a phenomenon too that summer, there were shirts and toys everywhere.

Welcome to Mack Bytes

Hello all, consider this the inaugural post of the new Mack Bytes blog.  Welcome!  I’ve chosen to sort of rebrand this blog, and sort of relaunch it for a couple of reasons.  The first and foremost of which is that the other blog has sort of faded. To be honest I started that blob it feels like a life-time ago, and it was started with the intention of creating a blog to provide articles that were intended to be “how-to”…
